Mariana + Michael | Royal Garden Hotel Kensington | London Wedding Photographer

I was looking forward so much to this day ever since Mariana booked me a year earlier. Last month we had an amazing time during their loveshoot session at Regents Park and St Paul's. I've known Mariana since forever when we went to the same church. Being one of the most hardworking people i know, she trained for years to be a doctor, and since i was originally trained as an Architect, i still remember vividly going 10 years back when she would say 'Peter, when i become a doctor, one day you've got to design and build my hospital'. Whilst this hasn't happened yet, i am so humbled for the opportunity given to enrich their lives in a different way, by giving them a set of images that they can always cherish. Thank you!

Mariana and Michael are deeply in love, and they have an incredible support system from all their loved ones. It was a highly emotional day full of laughter and tears, including my own! The ceremony took place at the beautiful St. Marks Coptic Church in Kensington, where they said their vows and exchanged their rings. But my favourite part of the Coptic tradition is when they are worn decorative garments and crowned! 

Everyone then headed to the Royal Garden Hotel. Everything in the reception was luxuriously elegant, from the table center pieces, lighting setup, floral designs and the cake. An Egyptian Zafa band lead the entrance followed by non stop dance mayhem to the very last second. I'm incredibly happy for these two, congratulations!
